As a kid, the World Wrestling Federation was lit. It didn’t get much better than pouring a cold glass of “Purplesaurus Rex” Kool-Aid and posting up in front of the TV for 60 minutes of pure WWF fire. The 90’s were the golden era of wrestling when it still looked borderline real. The interviews, storylines, and compelling matches had you hooked.

But y’all weren’t in these wrestling streets so deep that you were watching WWF and WCW on Saturday mornings though…

Anyways, here is my list of Top 5 Wrestlers of All Time for this week’s #WBW.

Ultimate Warrior

Runnin up to the ring like a bat outta hell, shaking the rope like a mad man and seemingly eatin all the punches given to him. The Ultimate Warrior’s energy was something to behold. I don’t think anybody was more intimidating.

Ric Flair

Imagine if social media was around during this time. Rick Flair had unlimited ladies, he had too much drip (Peep his robe game), and that hair was iconic. Nobody in the game had more swag. If you have some spare time look up a Ric Flair interview and you’ll see everything I’m sayin.

Hulk Hogan

Hogan might have had the hottest walk up music (between him and Shawn Michaels). Every kid in America wanted to rip his shirt open but knew they’d get that a** beat cuz moms don’t play that. We were all Hulkamanics!

Bret “The Hitman” Hart

The Sharp Shooter* might have been the best finishing move of all wrestlers. He had crazy swag too rockin the Aviator shades at all times. Brett was in most of my favorite matches, especially for WrestleMania.

Shawn Michaels

AKA “The Heartbreak Kid”…You just knew “sweet chin music” was coming when he left his opponent fake dazed in the middle of the ring. Shawn had all the honies and his Ladder match versus Razor Ramon was the type of match you polish a whole bag of Teddy Grahams over. Pure classic.

*Correction: a previous version of this article listed Bret Hart’s finishing move as the Boston Crab. We apologize for the offensive oversight.
